ambassador stevens' diplomatic cables. a few short blocks away from the u.n. where the president continued to condemn this youtube trailer, we're awaiting this week the return of the biggest piece of trash disgilessed as so-called art, a crucifix in the artist's urine. we heard nothing about this. joining me with reaction, our former new hampshire governor, one-man romney wrecking crew john sununu along with fox contributor john trippi. has anybody drawn more attention to this video that was so amateurishly put together than the president of the united states? why does he continue to obsess about this? he didn't o obsess. he said that the video was wrong and bad. and it was. i disagree with you, sean. he mentioned that we shouldn't -- you know, freedom of speech is important, but you -- >> bill: joe, he's been saying this from the beginning. it's the video, it's the video. >> no. >> bill: wait a minute. he sent susan rice out there, jay carney. sent them out there for days telling the american people that on the anniversary of 9/11, the attacks on all of our embassies, the death of four am
diary. for more on this, i'm joined by "new york times" reporter steven lee myers. and daniel byman, director of the center for peace and security studies at georgetown university. steven lee myers, let me start with you. two top administration officials say it was terrorism. one makes a direct link to an al qaeda group but how much and what exactly is known at this point about the attack in benghazi? >> well, i think administration is clearly trying to learn more. from the first day they've launched an investigation headed by the f.b.i., of course. then you have an internal review. and they've been very careful not to jump to conclusions, if you will. and that's led them to sort of change-- not change, evolve their story a little bit each day. you learn a little bit more. the question of whether or not it was a terrorist attack. initially it seemed to be more of a mob or riot that was prompted by the video that's been circulating and causing protests across the region. that now seems not to have been the case. it seems to have been a much more organized attack that was perhaps spar
stevens, the u.s. ambassador to libya, and three other americans were killed in that assault on their compound in benghazi. while the investigation into the attack is far from over, the white house is now offering a new take on what really happened. here's abc's jake tapper. >> reporter: secretary of defense leon panetta acknowledged that the attack that killed four americans in benghazi, libya, on the anniversary of 9/11 was not only cared out by terrorists, it was premeditated. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. >> reporter: the white house first suggested that the benghazi attack was spontaneous. the result of that anti-muslim video inciting mobs throughout the region. >> jake let's be clear. these protests were in eereaction to a video that had spread to the region. we don't know -- we don't though otherwise. you know, we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. >> reporter: but source tell abc news t
stevens and three other americans were killed in the september 11th attack in benghazi and molly henneberg is following the story live in washington what happens next. >> she has her supporters including the president saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations and providing the best knowledge that the administration had at the time. and john kerry, democratic chairman of the foreign relations committee says she's a quote enormously capable person, but republican congressman peter king is it not convinced. he wants to know why five days after the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others, ambassador rice stated publicly on several talk shows it was a spontaneous attack that grew out of an anti-muslim video when there was evidence it was a coordinated terror attack. >> ambassador rice should resign and we should investigate how high up this went and if the administration would voluntarily come forward and why they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much else out there and yet, they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start.
for removing that post? first, as we know, the diary of our fallen ambassador christopher stevens was uncovered at the site of the terrorist attack. according to cnn, he had concerns about his safety. this blatantly contradicts the state department's now deleted memo. since that discovery secretary of state hillary clinton has denied the concerns. remember this? >> there's one report suggesting that ambassador stevens that he was on a, quote, al-qaeda hit list. is this a scurrilous humor, gallous humor when one is workg in a period of great difficulty and challenge or is there something more to what he allegedly -- i stress that word -- said? >> as to your question, i have no information or reason to believe there's any basis for that. >> sean: despite the fact that our own ambassador e wrote it in his own diary, we're supposed to believe he never mentioned any of these concerns to his superiors, no emails, no diplomatic cables, nothing? secretary clinton also claims that the administration had no information to suggest that our assets in libya were ever at risk, but in light of the news that t
cnn's reporting, but it was found in ambassador steven's diary and believed that he was an al qaeda terror hitless. there was a question about whether he communicated that to his state department. as one would assume he would have. you just have to believe that the ambassador is afraid for his life and believes he is on a hitless and there was no discussion without with this bosses. now they want to see communication between mr. stevens and the state department prior to his murder and if there is a communication that shows the state department and the 9/11 anniversary, have he is an adequately protected, he is on the ground and trying to target the consulate, might that not have some political ramifications? >> the political ramifications will come from the voters. congress, republican leaders, outspoken conservatives who are trying to politicize all this, including mitt romney, it has backfired. this is the proper role of congress to investigate this and it should be done dispassionately. it will not be concluded by the election. megyn: i will give you the final word, ed. >> all th
in washington over what happened the nikt ambassador chris stevens was killed. today, leon panetta stepped in to the fray, finally using the t word. >> the reason i think pretty clearly it was a terrorist attack because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. and against our individuals. >> clearly, a terrorist attack. now, panetta stopped short of saying which terrorist group was specifically responsible, but for two weeks, the white house and state department have refrained from blaming terrorists directly and when hillary clinton started to ame al-qaeda, the state department backed off. here she is in the u.n. meeting we reported on last night connecting al-qaeda linked groups to what she called the tragic attack. >> for some time, al-qaeda in the islamic mag and other groups have launched attacks and kid p kidnappings to other countries and are working with other extremists to undermine the transitions in north africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. as we tragically saw in benghazi. after our show, the state department backtracked saying clinton was s
a lot of hot button issues. >> yeah. the most recently retired justices were john paul stevens went out at 90. david souter 69, sandra day o'connor 75. is there a tradition of when justices usually retire, be it age, or time served? >> well, they're like most human beings. a lot of factors weigh in. there is -- there was a tradition where justices would tend to retire during the term of a president that was at the same party that appointed them. but we know neither justices souter nor stevens did that. they were both republican employees and went out during president obama's term. life circumstances can drive retirement decisions. so it's really not scientifically predictable or politically predictable. >> do you see any most likely candidates if another seat opens up under president obama? >> you know, i think if president obama, first of all, justice ruth bader ginsburg i think the pressure to replace her with another woman appointee would be enormous. we've made progress in getting a third of the court female and i don't think president obama or any president would want to go backwar
including our ambassador to libya, chris stevens and four days after they were told, intel knew there was a terrorist attack, this is what the administration sent our u.n. ambassador on the sunday shows to tell america. >> the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous, reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted of course by the video. what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi, as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. megyn: joining me now, simon rosenberg, president and founder of ndn think tank and former advisor to president clinton. mark these send, fellow at american enterprise institute and former speechwriter for president george w
, memorialized ambassador stevens in a speech to the united nations general assembly. a speech in which the president did not say the words assassination, murder, or terrorism in relation to the ambassador's death. the president is once again blamed the terrorist strike against our consulates and the murders of four americans on a low-budget amateurish, anti-islam, almost 14-minute-long youtube video that had been on line for months before the attack. >> in every country there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening. that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks. the crude and disgusting video that sparked outrage throughout the muslim world. lou: the president did brave the assault on citizenry and blasted a run for propping up the regime is, supporting terrorism, and for refusing to prove that their nuclear ambitions are peaceful. >> just as it restrains the rights of its own people the iranian government continues to prop up the dictator in damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad. time and again it has failed to take the up today to demonstrate that its
that the president and secretary clinton spoke about this video at the memorial service to ambassador stevens and the other folks who came home in coffins at andrews. spoke about the video. today, secretary clinton -- or yesterday -- spoke about al-qaeda and all of the groups of the people responsible for attack in benghazi. it seems disjointed. now al-qaeda is behind it. >> two separate set of events. one is you have anybody playing politics here is the romney campaign seeking some advantage as they are struggling in the polls and looking at the foreign policy. >> bret: take -- >> having problems. but to your point, they are learning more as time goes along. i don't think there is anybody trying to deny anybody. it's al-qaeda affiliate. not al-qaeda per se. >> bret: we continue this and talk about the economy and the politics of the campaign when we come back. a lot to talk about today. does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ?

states ambassador chris stevens and three other americans in libya was in his words clearly the work of terrorists. >> the reason i think it pretty clearly it was a terrorist attack is because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. and against our individuals. what terrorists were involved i think still remains to be determined by the investigation. but it clearly was a group of terrorists who conducted that attack against that facility. >> a nior u.s. official tells cnn intelligence suggested within 24 hours after the attack within 24 hours extremists either affiliated or inspired by al qaeda may have been behind it. cnn's senior international correspondent arwa damon got extraordinary access to what could be considered a breeding ground for extremism inside the country. >> reporter: it may look like a sleepy beach front town, but it has reputation as a home to islamist extremist militia. some of them with links to al qaeda. these militia had allegedly left their bases but continue to haunt the streets. we tried to get access to one of these bases.

including ambassador chris stevens. chief among them, what did the intelligence community know and when did it know it and when and how was the obama administration informed. just in to cnn, the national intelligence director is addressing both issues. let's get right to cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly in washington. >> this has been something of a political football thrown around for a couple of weeks now as people try to nail down what happened, when intelligence officials knew it, and this is the fullest accounting yet we're getting now from the office of the director of national intelligence on exactly what they knew and when. i want to read to you from a statement by shawn turner, the director of public affairs for the odni's office. he said in the immediate aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier thie day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of congress who use that formation to discuss the attack publicly. now, the problem, of cou
